The theme for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is INTRICATE.
The reproductive members at the center of a Gerbera daisy produce an array of such ordered intricacy that their arrangement can be defined mathematically.
John Viccellio retired after 24 years in the U. S. Navy and began to dig into gardening when he could finally land in one place. He completed the Master Gardener course in 1992 and has since designed and constructed two of his own gardens. He wrote a monthly garden column for ten years and was a regular contributor to Carolina Gardener magazine. John published his first book, Guess What's in My Garden!, in 2014.
He lives in a retirement community in Matthews, NC.

Notice how the pieces in the middle radiate out in lines of an ever increasing radius.
